Police will prepare a report for the coroner.

It has not been revealed how he died, but his death is not being treated as suspicious.

The man was inside the three-storey building at the time and died at the scene.

Traffic was brought to a standstill in the CBD as 17 firefighting appliances tried to extinguish the blaze.

Firefighters attended a blaze at the Club X building on Barrack Street about 1:00pm yesterday.

The cause of the fire has also been deemed as not deliberate.

A man has died following a fire that broke out inside an adult shop building in Perth's central business district.

It is expected a Department of Fire and Emergency Services review into the fire will also be presented to the coroner but it will only form part of that report.
